He isn't bleeding but the inside of his lip has a couple white looking bruises and the outside part is swelling and red, almost looks like a scab on the other side but he just did it. It's so weird looking. I think his tooth hit there when he fell but I can't see a cut or anything. He also got a huge goose egg on his head. I am a first time mom. Everything in me is screaming rush to the doctor but do you think a ice pack will be okay? He doesn't seem to notice the bump and bruise. Lets me touch it and everything without crying. My son just started walking and this is our first big ouchy from it.Answer Question

You did good Have him suck on a popsicle atleast he is enjoying it and you are feeling alittle relief at the same time :) Next time depending on how bad he hurts himself try not to run to his rescue bc in the future he will always expect mommy to be there I know it will be hard to do but think about it it will pay off as he gets older. Oh and if he falls and bumps his head and you know it was a pretty hard fall and there was no bump where you know it should have been watch him closely make sure his eyes are not dialated and don't let him go to sleep just keep on eye on him for a few hours when he appears to be himself then don't worry about it. GL I am a mommy of 2 Have fun it is going to be along journey but your gonna love it.
